Newsletter – Peach-O-Gram 2009 0413 Redux

Hey there sweet family,

Yikes! What if we wrote a Peach-O-Gram and it didn’t “send”? Apparently that’s what happened with this one, so we’re going to try, try again. Thanks very much to the Peach Corps members who posted about the Merriweather pre-sale in the Forum, giving us a heads up to the glitch.

Take care and know that you are loved,

Speaking of concerts, for the first time ever, guitarist Jimmy Herring is touring with his own band – a hand-picked ensemble of all-star musicians. The Jimmy Herring Band features Jimmy on guitar, drummer extraordinaire Jeff Sipe (Aquarium Rescue Unit, Jazz is Dead, Shawn Lane), prolific jazz maverick Greg Osby on saxophone, multifaceted keyboardist Scott Kinsey (Tribal Tech), and our very own Mr. Bass Man, Oteil Burbridge, on bass for the spring dates.

Jimmy’s dynamic, exploratory guitar work has been a key component of such renowned groups as the Aquarium Rescue Unit, Jazz is Dead, Project Z, and, most recently, Widespread Panic – with whom he still plays lead guitar. Much esteemed by his fellow musicians, Jimmy has also performed with Phil Lesh and Friends, the Allman Brothers, and the Dead.

The Jimmy Herring Band will perform a wide range of material, including compositions from his long-awaited and much-acclaimed 2008 solo debut “Lifeboat” (Abstract Logix Music). The band will also cover influential tracks from the 60’s and 70’s and select favorites from the catalogues of the individual band members.

Jimmy is understandably excited about the prospect of performing this music with this lineup over an extended period of time. “It’s a shot of adrenaline to get to play with musicians who are pushing the envelope and breaking down the walls that exist between genres of music. Each of these musicians inspires with every note they play.”
